An original musical, “Immortal” is the next chapter of Irish folklore. The story is set between the mythological land of Tír na nóg, rural Galway during the Irish civil war and modern day Galway. It is created by Galway’s Morgan Brothers Luke and Jake, and features 12 new original songs that strive to bring our rich local history and celtic traditions to a modern audience.
An era after her Dad has left Tír na nóg, Plur sets off on a perilous journey to find him. With the help of Choppy, a grouchy swan, Plur crosses the sea to the magical land she has heard spoken about only in stories: Ireland. But when she arrives, she learns that trouble is brewing. The year is 1921 and the struggle for Irish Independence is about to take a bitter turn. As Plur falls into step with a bunch of young rebels intent on storming Renmore Barracks, there is only one question on her mind: will she manage to find her Dad, and bring him home before it is too late?
Immortal is a coming-of-age adventure about stories, family, and what it truly means to live forever. In a challenging 18 months for the arts, we are ready to get back to the live theatre and share some magic. “Immortal” is a new original musical created and starring local Galway artists, developed with the kind assistance of THT’s “Patron Award”.
